Zero Magazine

Imagine Publishing

Zero was a video game magazine in the UK, published monthly by Dennis Publishing Ltd. between November 1989 and October 1992. (Actual publication dates were in the preceding month, as usual for UK magazines.) It won the InDin Magazine of the Year award in both 1990 and 1991, and was also briefly the best-selling multi-format 16-bit computer magazine in the UK.

The launch editor was Gareth Herincx, who vacated the hotseat during the construction of issue 3 at which point Tim Ponting took over. Reviewers for the launch issue were: Jonathan Davies, Sean Kelly, Duncan MacDonald, David McCandless, Marcus 'Binky' Berkmann, and Matt Bielby (all former writers for Your Sinclair). Other journalists of note who passed through Zero's hallowed chambers included David 'Whistlin' Rick' Wilson, 'Lord' Paul Lakin, Amaya Lopez, Jackie Sutton, Rich Pelley and Jane Goldman.

Issue 1 contained a coverdisk containing two free games for the Amiga and Atari ST. A regular coverdisk was later introduced which included full games and playable demos. Zero caused controversy when issue 31 included a playable demo of Cover Girl Poker on the cover disk. This resulted in the magazine being banned from the leading newsagents. By issue 33 the magazine was re-designed without the spine and had taken on a more youth orientated look.

The magazine was notable for the considerable off-beat adolescent humour and wordplay used throughout the magazine — a continuation of the style first seen in Your Sinclair. Zero is the precursor to the humorous style of writing used in magazines such as PC Zone, and in fact many of the original writers who contributed to Zero went on to submit work for PC Zone.
